Happy New Year, everyone! I know it's been a long time and for that I apologize. The three of you who were still reading this must have wondered what happened to me. Actually, you're probably all on Facebook, so you already know what happened to me.
Anyway, I'm not really sure why I haven't written in a while. It's not that I didn't have anything to write about. So much happened this past year! I won't bore you. Some good, some bad, but 2009 kept me hopping. And I have even more planned for 2010. I guess I lost my creative mojo for a while there, but I think it's coming back. The brain cloud is dissipating and I'm ready to write again. I'm going to be playing with my template a bit, too.
This evening, Hubby went out for pizza because I've been sick and didn't feel like cooking. In fact, we had planned to go on a weekend trip, but I had started to feel bad on Wednesday and called it off. We didn't go to church this morning either. Anyway, he went out for pizza and the fuel line on the van came off. Imagine if we had been on the highway somewhere, with the kids, in this cold weather! Or even just somewhere between church and home this morning. Hubby called a friend who picked him up and brought the pizza home, then took him back to the van, and then followed him home again just to make sure he made it. It will go to the shop tomorrow.
Sometimes we fail to take notice of the little ways God cares for us. We take for granted that we will get safely from point A to point B without incident, when in reality it's amazing something doesn't happen to us. It reminds me of that old Amy Grant song. "Near misses all around me, accidents unknown, though I never see with human eyes the hands that lead me home." So, thank you, Lord, for the head cold that kept us home.
